What skills and experience we're looking for

Trust in Learning Academies (TiLA) is seeking a Director of SEND, Safeguarding and Inclusion to join the Trust central team from Term 5 onwards. This is a 0.6 role, with the hours able to be worked flexibly to meet the needs of the schools and Trust.

You will strategically lead the Trust’s SEND, safeguarding and inclusion strategies. Your vison and values should be entirely aligned with the Trust’s as inclusion in its broadest sense sits at the heart of TiLA. You will have oversight of provision across all Trust schools which will enable school staff to deliver consistently high-quality SEND, safeguarding and inclusion for children. You will establish innovative and efficient processes, providing coaching and training opportunities, and commission inclusion work across school communities. You will lead networks for our school SENDCOs, DSLs and support schools to work even more positively with Looked After Children, Young Carers, and other vulnerable children. You are well versed in EDIB work, know how to take a strategic approach to supporting staff wellbeing, and can provide strategic support to schools to build school communities. This is a really varied and interesting role with exciting opportunities to make significant impact across our Trust.

As such an important person in our school development team, you will also be needed to work with education professionals to support school improvement across a wider sphere, for example by carrying out school-commissioned reviews.

This Director role requires strategic thinking, high integrity, ambition, decisiveness and precision. You will be experienced in school senior leadership or have significant experience working with Headteachers to bring about change. You may come from a primary or secondary background, and you will be prepared to work across our Trust of eight schools (primary, all-through and secondary) as part of the School Development Team. If you see yourself working in a central role, are an ambitious thinker and strategist, can write well, but also roll up your sleeves to help out where needed, want to work in a values-led Trust, and of course meet the person spec, we warmly welcome your application!

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities, in particular those who are currently under-represented within our staff team. This includes, but is not limited to, people who speak one or more community languages, people from minority ethnic groups and people who identify as disabled. We are committed to taking steps to increase the diversity of our employees and removing any barriers to opportunities and success.

In terms of a base for the school development team, our place of work is currently south Bristol, however due to growth we aim to be moving to north Bristol from summer 2024 onwards.
